HYPOTHESIS A mitochondrial mechanism contributes to neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS). Genetic variants of Complex I genes may influence the nature of tissue response to inflammation in the central nervous system (CNS). BACKGROUND Complex I is encoded by seven mitochondrial and 38 nuclear genes. Many of the nuclear genes colocalize with regions(More)
The importance of β-chemokines (or CC chemokine ligands – CCL) in the development of inflammatory lesions in the central nervous system of patients with multiple sclerosis and rodents with experimental allergic encephalomyelitis is strongly supported by descriptive studies and experimental models. Our recent genetic scans in families identified haplotypes(More)
We measured the mRNA expression levels of molecules involved in scavenging free radicals and in apoptosis within normal appearing white and gray matter (NAWM and NAGM, respectively) and chronic active plaque containing frontal lobe specimens of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). While no regional differences were detected in the mRNA levels of free(More)
